Young people from Asian countries, poor and underdevelopment countries and third world countries risk their lives after spends thousands of dollars and try their luck to migrate Europe and endure months and years of waiting.
Thousands of young people in a Bosnian camp bordering Europe are forced to live without adequate access to drinking water and medical aid. They have to wait in long lines for food and are looking for an opportunity to enter Europe illegally.
The camp was set on fire last year after International Organization for Migration (IOM) refused to work.
Bosnia has not paid attention to European Union’s provision of alternative accommodation for camp, some military tents and beds have been provided to migrants but hundreds are still forced to take refuge in used buildings.
A 16-year-old Ali, from Afghanistan, says he has been sheltering in a bus structure for six months. More than 8,000 people are stranded in Bosnia, most of them from Muslim countries, and have been barred from seeking refuge in Serbia’s Croatian territories.
